Description: 

Issue of the anti-corruption, Kansas City-based newspaper, Future: The Newsweekly for Today. The front page includes an article, continued on page 8, asserting that it “is well established that there are approximately three thousand persons drawing pay from the city when the work actually is being done by about fifteen hundred,” the impact that has on salaries, and the departments in which the issue is most evident. Other featured articles include: “You May Live Till March, Cabbies” (p. 2) about an ordinance going into effect March 1 that is believed to be an attempt for the machine to control the taxi business by forcing independent operators to meet operating requirements that will likely put them out of business; “Marble Games Struggle Along” (p. 3), article about the requirement of "stickers" on nickel-operated gambling machines in Kansas City for protection against their destruction by the police department, including a picture of a police officer taking an ax to a stack of machines; and “May We Present W. Rickert Fillmore” (p. 5), photo and biographical article about W. Rickert Fillmore, "secretary of the Unity School of Christianity, president of the Art Institute, and an active agent in half a dozen civic enterprises," born in Kansas City as the son of Unity's founder, Charles Fillmore; also included in the newspaper are advertisements for local businesses and articles on fashion, finance, cooking, music, art, letters to the editor, and national and international news.
